I can understand not wanting to send me the files if they might nclude personal data, I wouldnt either.does anyone know if this would have a chance of working usong the android emulator so there would not be any personal data involved? or for that matter if someone has a virgin phone that they wouldnt mind rooting and sending files from before any personal data is placed on it?
I believe this may help
1. Download Golden Update from Entourage here:
2. Rename the file to update.zip then copy the update to the root of an SD card and pop the SD card in your eDGe
3. Press and hold "rotate" and "menu" buttons and turn on your eDGe using power button. You need to hold "rotate" and "menu" for about 7 seconds to start firmware update process.
I believe this ought to factory reset your edge.

Revert from Ermine (Froyo) back to Dingo The process to revert from Ermine (Froyo) back to Dingo is detailed below. NO userdata will be saved. This is NOT an update or downgrade, it is a reformat of the edge/pocket and will delete all of your data and configurations. BEFORE YOU START - Login to your account and opt-out of the beta so you don't update to it again! 1. Download the Golden Update file for edge or pocket edge. eDGe 2.0 http://www.entourageedge.com/support/rsc/updates/latest-edge2/update.golden.zip Pocket http://www.entourageedge.com/support/rsc/updates/latest-pocket/update.golden.zip 2. Rename the file to "update.zip" 3. Place this file in the root (not a subdirectory) of a USB stick 4. Verify your edge/pocket is OFF. 5. Insert the USB stick into a USB port on the device. 6. While holding down the MENU and ROTATE buttons on the LCD side of the device, press the power key. 7. Continue to hold the MENU and ROTATE keys down for 10 seconds. 8. After 1-2 minutes you should see an "Updating software" splash screen. Because we are downgrading versions of Android in this procedure, there is a catch. The procedure above will not be able to completely update, and we will need to run the update procedure twice. 9. After the "Updating Software" splash screen has been displayed for MORE than 20 minutes, press the reset button with a paper clip on the pocket. On the eDGe, remove the battery and AC. 10. Once the eDGe/pocket is off, leave the USB stick inserted and while holding down the MENU and ROTATE buttons on the LCD side of the device, press the power key. 11. Continue to hold the MENU and ROTATE keys for 10 seconds. 12. After 1-2 minutes you should see an "Updating software" splash screen. 13. After ~15 minutes the device will reboot and will be running the latest Donut (Dingo) build.
Just got all the gapps working, all I had to do was install them normally then convert each to system files.
However, now I'm running into the problem with the accounts, whenever I try to sign in I get the network error, I tried the youtube workaround (didn't want to do that first as it was mentioned that it could cause sync issues), but now it just comes up saying that it has encountered an error and needs to close(on the terms acceptance screen I think).
If anyone has any idea what this might be that would be great, I can post a log and any other info you would need/want. Thanks
Oh, should be noted that I did not use a backup from another phone, but just the gapps posted in the zip file above, so I might be missing some required data...
I copied the exact backups of the working apps from my PE to my boyfriend's and restored them from TiBU. Go figure, I'm getting that same #$%^ed error as you. It will let him sign into his account and check Gmail but we can't access the Market. He took his with him for the day so maybe you can post a log and I can try to figure out what's going on? I'll also check the log on his tonight and see if it's the same issue. Don't know if I'll be able to determine a fix (I'm not good with code but Google is always helpful) but it's worth a try.
